I have fond memories of Mary from her days at CLC . She actually worked in the associate degree program also. She had lots of tales to share about her years working with students. Mary was always upbeat and ready to take on the task. I know after she retired and lived at Victory Lakes she was the best helper doing b/p checks and helping to keep everyone healthy. I learned from her an important lesson. As she scaled down from house to condo to independent living and so on. She always said I’m going to make my own decisions as long as I can and I think she did a great job. Truly a life well lived. Blessed to have known her. May your family treasure all those years of memories. And I guess she truly followed footsteps on longevity as did her mother! God bless you!
